A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

"Fly Me to The Moon"

Our guild meeting tonight was threefold: quilt show talk with this weekend's show starting Saturday; guest speaker, Suzanne Miller Jones, and our featured quilter, Trish Radar's trunk show of her very beautiful and sweet quilts!

Suzanne's project of "Fly Me to The Moon" encompassed her receiving 179 quilts from quilters all over the world and their interpretation of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon walk. She gave us a six minute rendition of several quilts that she will be presenting in Houston,Texas, later this year. They were all so good and interesting, especially on how each artist devised and developed their design using approximately a 20"x30" size limit. 

Following Suzanne, Featured Quilter Trish Radar gave us a glimpse of her beautiful quilts that will be displayed this weekend at our annual Southern Comforters Quilt Show at Sam Ogle Middle School this coming Saturday and Sunday (March 12,13) in Bowie, Maryland. 

According to this years chair, Carrie Casto, the quilts entered are "stunning" and should not be missed if you are local!
